  2. Skipped doses (The elder forgets or is not home to take the drug.)
  3. Medication discontinuation (The elder perceives that the medication is not working and stops taking it.)
  4. Dose self-adjustment (The elder adjusts the dose to save money.)
  5. Over-adherence (The elder takes more of the drug because symptoms worsen.)
